Where's the Real Christmas Music

I am not much for Christmas music, that is the all Christmas music all the time starting at Thanksgiving or sooner. That station doesn't get much play in the Flannery mobile. However, today I decided that I wanted to hear a few tunes while I was on my way to Sam's Club and other death defining locations in St. Cloud. I turned on the All Christmas music station. Brenda Lee "Rocking Around the Christmas Tree"; Gene Autry "Frosty the Snowman", but no real Christmas carols. I wanted to deck some halls and fa some la's. There were no Christmas carols. It was secular Christmas. "I'll be home for Christmas" but no virgins or mangers or stars over Bethlehem. I wanted the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and what to my wondering ears shall appear? Porky Pig singing "Blue Christmas". Bah humbug!! I couldn't take it anymore. I turned on the classic rock station and listened to Jim Morrison and Jimmy Hendrix. So much for Christmas carols this year.

In your honor, I just stood in front of my tree and sang Silent Night with my camera in hand. Let's see if I can figure out how to upload the "movie" before Christmas. If not, have a good one! ~Mindy
